Almost Lost It

Heading to work this morning and went around a bus. When I did there was a red light right ahead with a couple cars already stopped. I slammed on the brakes pretty hard, front and back. The back end waved left and right so I let off the brakes and reapplied. Scary stuff, its my first bike and its new, im taking it in today for the 600 mile service and a new exhaust.

I think a good way to recover is to stand up a little on the foot pegs, shifting weight on the front end, allowing the back to do what it has to without much weight and momentum to cause a problem.
I wasn't tailing the bus, it was in the distance, i came up to it and then went around. The bus was in movement so it was legal to pass.
Well the clutch should be in anways when your braking right? I guess you could brake and let off the throttle for some extra engine braking, but when i see a stop coming, i pull in the clutch and brake.
